Vacation; Day One

It's been well over a year since I've taken a true week-long vacation, so I decided now was a good time. Kayla is in Kenya, and Cole is in a cast due to a broken wrist (a wrist we waited about TWO months to have checked out by a doctor!) so we really don't have anything planned. Just some lazy days followed by a dirt bike trip with some buddies. Today was my first official vacation day and it was action packed (insert sarcasm).

- Woke up about 9:00 a.m. and laid around watching news and ESPN until Rachel got back from a morning coffee date with a friend.

- At 11:30 we went to Chick-Fil-A for our usual Monday morning date...I drank way too much sweet tea.

- Over lunch I began to warm her up to the idea of purchasing a used pick up truck to haul our bikes around. I had a truck for years and about three years ago I donated it to our church thinking I had outlived my need for a pickup. Of course, that was before we started dirt bike riding. Doh!

- This afternoon we picked Cole up from school and took him to get a cast on his broken wrist.

- A few minutes ago I got back from test-driving the truck I have my eye on. I highly doubt I will end up buying it (or any other one for that matter), but it was kinda fun. My environmentally-minded, global warming sensitive friends will be disappointed in my vehicular choice should I make a purchase.

- Now I'm getting ready to eat some chili, hang with the family and gear up for 24.

Dear vacation,
I think I love you.

Oh, and I think we are all in agreement that 24 has yet to disappoint this season.
